A user has got his hands on the beta version of firmware 2.50.
Good job Sony good job
Yeah it is a great update, most excited for Suspend/Resume and 60fps for Remote Play and Shareplay
button assignments is cool too
Seriously, MoldyBread; Besides the suspend / resume feature - which I have been waiting for on all apps, not just Netflix, YouTube, etc. - button mapping is really top-notch stuff. This is a system-wide change, so any buttons you are used to in all apps will be modified.
Some really cool update functions for sure, great job Sony! I wonder how button assignments work - does it remap the UI or games or both? As a XB1 owner, I hope to see this function at some point since a lot of times button configurations can be frustrating.
I read somewhere last week it only applies to the ui unfortunately.
According to Scott McCarthy, yes you can. Here read it yourself. Auron2 asks - ”*Users will also be able to reassign buttons for DualShock 4, making it easier for users with limited manual dexterity or limited reach and strength to play.” "Wow, wait. Does this mean we can actually force custom control settings into any game? That would be cool" And Scoot McCarthy replies - "Not the primary intended purpose but yes you are correct!" http://blog.us.playstation.... Comment no.22
@dantesparda Wow Really ? that means PS4 users can get rid of the Dedicated Launch button on DmC because we can force it..that's a big plus. i will have to try that out later in the year During down time. maybe with this old school fan's might be able to fix the Launch in DmC to how it was in older games
Meanwhile not a single improvement to library management or folders for installed games. It would be nice to hide all of the useless betatests in my library.
I like it so far. I wish they wouldn't have put that PS Store tab down on the main screen though, it was fine where it was. Also super excited for the Spotify integration and I can't wait to have all of my Destiny data deleted in 60fps over SharePlay!
Playstation Now for Germany ? YES!!!
Wurde auch mal zeit ;-) Finally! I would love to play god of war 3 again, if it's available ofcourse.
Mir ist egal.
Why did they have to put playstation store on the home screen :/
Seriously! It was fine where it was.
I hope thy move it back! Honestly, bring back the XMB, this new UI is nothin but a headache and disorganized. It's probably my only pet peeve
eh? No offence but it's one of the simplest UI's i've ever used, it's quick to navigate and you can fly between menu's with ease. Are you using it blind folded?
Look at all those disagrees the PS3 ui was horrid I think everyone knows that. The ps4 ui is farrrrrrrr better more easy to use and it's better than the X1 ui.
I thought the XMB won, like, a billion fucking design awards or something? And everybody was praising it last gen. I thought it was elegant and highly functional. But all those disagrees, man...
Those disagrees are probably because he's saying the still straightforward ui of the PS4 is some difficult mess when it's not. Don't know why any of you would have jumped to the conclusion you did.
There isn't a huge difference between the XMB and the PS4 UI. PS4 just has another section of the XMB for apps/games. All the stuff that was there before is still there, and it's pretty easy to navigate. The social media stuff can look cluttered when you highlight a game, but you can mostly ignore it to start a game or do whatever.
Did I just see a back-up to USB option? thank god, now I can update my HDD eventually.
yeah I did a 1 tb update, it was a pain in the arse to restore everything. I'll eventually want a 2 tb drive, but I dreaded doing it again. Backing everything up to external drive will help immensely!
I'm really glad I decided to upgrade it right out of the box before playing anything. I remember how much of a pain it was to do with the PS3.
Anyone know if button assignment is per game or for all games?
For all games. It's system wide, so if you switch X for O, every game, app and everything you use will have that configuration.
This is such a great feature for gamers, especially for those that are disabled.
The trophy pictures are going to be a pain in the a$$!! I hope there will be an option to disable them
They won't be a pain if it does it automatically, it will never get in the way if it's doing it in the background. If your worried about clogging up the HD with pictures thats just good house keeping, I regularly clear unwanted pictures and videos. I like the idea but an option to turn it off would appease those not in favour.
I agree. I really don't want to have to keep clearing out pics from my hard drive. We need an option to turn that off.
Pictures take up so little memory you will hardly even notice it, and it seems like it does it automatically.
Meh... nothing that I like. I guess i'll wait another 4-5 months for Folders Online friend notfications wallpapers Appear offline USB video DLNA give it what the PS3 has had for years. Edit: @ BiggerBoss No I don't like any of that or I would have said I did.
So you dont like Suspend/resume or 60 fps shareplay, but you care so much about friend notifications? Lol
THIS >>> "nothing that I LIKE" who are you to judge what a person likes or wants?
